Saif is an Al Pacino fan


Speaking about the films that changed how he thinks about acting, Saif Ali Khan said, “I think anything Al Pacino’s done, maybe Heat or something - I’m a huge Al Pacino fan, I think he’s just a legend. His craft and the way he acts and how he gets into it, I’ve never seen anything come close even. So almost anything he’s done - Scent of a Woman or Heat for example, whenever I see him work, I’m like, I wish I could come close to this level of getting into the work. He’s just too good.”


In another segment, speaking about learning acting, Saif Ali Khan said, “I did kind of study it a little bit, to see what is this thing that people say is craft and technique, I have no idea what it means."

Saif Ali Khan undergoes tricep surgery

Saif Ali Khan recently underwent tricep surgery for an old injury. A day after the surgery, the actor opened up about the tricep surgery and injury, saying that he had ignored the issue for a long time and that he only opted for the procedure when the pain became too much to handle. The actor also condemned media outlets for spreading misinformation and exaggerated reports, stating that neither his knee nor his back is the source of the injury.

Saif Ali Khan said that the injury had been aching for a long time and that the pain would ebb and flow. The actor confessed to not knowing the severity of the injury, saying, "Other times it caused unbearable pain... I didn’t really know how serious the injury was,” he told Zoom.

Mentioning how the injury got triggered again while shooting action sequences for Koratala Siva's Telugu movie, Devara, Saif said that he continued working, under the impression that everything would be fine. "Then I was working out, and the pain felt aggravated, and then it became okay.”
